What is a plugin template and a plugin monitor?
A plugin template is a set of attributes to be monitored.
Example: mysql.py file consisting of attributes like slow queries, reads, writes etc
A monitor that uses a plugin template for monitoring purposes
Example: The mysql.py template installed in 'n' number of servers will create 'n' number of MySQL plugin monitors
A single plugin template can be used for multiple plugin monitors
A user downloads and installs the mysql.py from the Site24x7 Git repository and adds it to Server A. So, the template is mysql.py and the plugin monitor added is mysql.py-A
Now, the user can also use the same template mysql.py in another server B. The plugin monitor mysql.py-B will be added
